RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:

Now to golf and this question from Commentator Frank Deford.

FRANK DEFORD: Are you enjoying the new PGA 2009 Tour? Oh, you didn't realize there was a PGA Tour anymore? Well, I can certainly understand that. Please don't be embarrassed. It's easy to misplace something so suddenly insignificant.

I: Or worse, suppose the Tiger Woods who finally does come back is not the deity who left. Not even Tiger Woods may be able to come off serious surgery and wish himself back to the power and glory he once knew.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

MONTAGNE: Commentator Frank Deford joins us each Wednesday from Member Station WSHU in Fairfield, Connecticut. This is MORNING EDITION from NPR News, I'm Renee Montagne.
